Kate’s in ‘The Hobbit,’ Jack’s in ‘World War Z’ — So Which ‘Lost’ Star Won?

Live together, die alone. And then after you die (onscreen, that is), separate off into completely separate career paths and try to outdo one another. Such is the post-finale motto of Lost, as we’ve seen quite a variety in the degrees of success to befall out favorite island stars.

On the one hand, we have the likes of Evangeline Lilly, whose toils as renegade Kate have been followed up by blockbuster promise (Peter Jackson’s upcoming The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, most notably). On the other end of the spectrum, we find poor Terry O’Quinn (666 Park Ave never had a chance, did it?) and Jorge Garcia (enough guest starring!). And somewhere in the middle — or some parallel sideways reality — there’s Matthew Fox, enjoying a turn in this week’s release of World War Z, but still suffering from a pretty volatile reputation off screen.

So the question is, which Lostie won? We might not have the omnipotence of the almighty Jacob, but we think our rankings are pretty accurate

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
